The Start Network aims to challenge and disrupt current ways of working in the humanitarian system to ensure assistance is provided more effectively and efficiently. Our strength lies in the power and efficiencies of the collective, our reach and our action.
We provide services, ideas and opportunities to our members and the wider humanitarian sector that change ways of operating at all levels, and help lead the development of innovations both locally and globally.
We are creating change through new forms of financing with our piloting of risk financing models, our pooled funds and our forecast-based early action initiatives, and encouraging others to follow in our footsteps.
We are committed to localisation with clearly articulated goals striving for more diversity and complementary partnerships, and our hub development ensuring a more balanced governance, and visibility and voice to local decision-makers.
Our reach and influence is evident in the growth and support of the work we do. In 2018, we had interest from 238 organisations to join the Network, and each year, more and more donors are wanting to invest in the work we do.
